Winemaker Dan Cederquist Notes
The grapes were crushed, pressed and settled on the first day, then inoculated with yeast. The Dunnigan Hills portion was barreled down. After barrel fermentation, the wine was allowed to age in barrels for eight months while being stirred regularly. The wine was then racked off the lees and blended. 22% of the barrels used were new; 78% of the wine was aged in Old Head French oak - used barrels - to add weight to the mouthfeel without masking the fresh fruit flavors of the wine.
